Home Treatment for Lower Back Pain

Do you have lower back pain problems?

If you suffer with lower back pain, you may be wondering if there are ways to address it in a natural way from the comfort of your own home. The short answer to that is, yes, there are such solutions available.

However, it must be mentioned that not all home remedies are highly effective to relieve pain. Approaches such as a heat pack (heating pad) or an ice pack (cold pack) are a good way to start, but they may not be a viable option if the painful surface is quite wide or if you suffer from chronic pain.

Bed rest may be beneficial in the short term but can be harmful in the long-term.

Instead, you may find that one or more of the following approaches may provide a better, long-term solution.

Bending, Stretching and Being Active

You need to bend and stretch as much as you can when you have back pain, as these exercises will stretch your spine, which needs to be decompressed.

Additionally, it is important to stay active in order to keep your spine in shape as well as to stretch and strengthen your back muscles. This is especially important for the lower back, as it is responsible for holding the torso upright, and hence it carries a higher load than the other two major parts of the back, the thoracic and cervical spine sections.

Exercising also helps with weight management, which is important for a healthy spine. Carrying excessive weight places an increased strain on your back, and as such, weight loss is recommended for people who are overweight and suffer from back pain.

Both stretching and staying active are necessary to keep your spine mobile in order to prevent stiffness and pain. Another option to achieve this is to engage in physical therapy. However, this can be quite costly, as it may require several sessions to mobilise and maintain the mobility of your spine.

Osteopaths and chiropractors also offer the option to treat patients by stretching their spines and giving massages. However, just like physical therapists, they can be quite expensive as well.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression for back pain relief has been practised at least since the days of Hippocrates (370 BC – 460 BC), who is often called the Father of Medicine. He used a system of ropes and pulleys and a ladder to attempt to relieve his patients’ back pain. It must have been painful. Luckily, we have come a long way since those days.

The reason why spinal decompression is one of the most effects ways to reduce back pain or relieve it altogether is because it addresses the root cause of the problem.

When your spine becomes compressed, it shortens in length and can press on other structures of the spine, such as discs or nerve roots. When nerve roots are pinched, they become irritated, triggering pain signals in the brain, which is what causes us to feel the sensation of pain.

By decompression your spine, you restore the space required for the spinal nerves to stay in their place, without having something rub against them and irritate them. As such, no pain sensations are triggered.

To decompress your spine from the comfort of your own home, in your own time, you can use the Spinal Backrack.

Backrack Spinal Decompression Device

The Spinal Backrack is a unique, orthopaedic spinal decompression device that has been carefully engineered by the brightest minds on Harley Street to treat back pain associated with spinal decompression. Given its design, it targets the entire length of the spine, ensuring all problem areas are relieved from pain. It is 100% natural, comfortable, and free of side-effects. Thousands of people have already seen its benefits, so why not be one of them?

Another option is to wear a back support belt, preferably one that also decompresses your spine, in addition to supporting your back. Thankfully, the Backrack Lumbar Belt, which is the portable version of the Backrack and acts specifically on the lower back, does just that.

Please note: If your pain persists or even gets worse, talk to your doctor and seek medical advice, as well as a diagnosis for any underlying health conditions that might be causing your symptoms, so that you can get adequate medical care for your needs.
